Verne is a custom mechanical keyboard with an elegant and uncluttered design, from the internal components to the case itself.

Powered by a custom WT80-A PCB designed by Wilba, with a beautiful dark blue solder mask and artwork from the GMK Nautilus keycap set, Verne is fully programmable via QMK and VIA Configurator. In addition to the WT80-A, Verne has an USB-C extension PCB that allow better placement of the USB-C connector by mounting it low, in parallel with your desk surface.

Zambumon Verne WT80-A Artwork Detail

The keyboard has a top-mounted brass plate with a fixed TKL layout, where 0.25U gaps separate the function row and navigation cluster from the 60% area. Having a fixed plate grants a tight fit on all switches and a clean look when the switches are in place, as all of the exposed plate holes are used.

Once assembled, Verne weighs around 2.5 kg (5.3 lbs), a perfect spot where it is hefty enough that moving it by accident is hard, but you can still pick it up and adjust its position easily.
